there is a crap load of work to do and we have 10 days before we leave for Wuste.
I think the e-level system is going on the car right now, and the engine and stuff should be ready and fired up tomorrow, make sure everything works, then put the rest of the car back together.
i've been told the swap is 98% done. Just need some new properly fitting plug wires and the C2 flash should arrive today. it should be running by days end!! s hit just got real yo

thanks Tony, it would have been dickish for me to do that.
i ordered a bunch of OEM engine bay junk today. grommets, clips, clamps etc.. going for a partial shaved clean OEM look.
It does however look like the new top won't be on in time for Wuste, figuring while on display the top would be down with the bitching boot cover i got, we would clean the crap out of the existing vinyl top, black magic the hell out of it, and put it down whenever possible.
well i finally got to go play with the car again today for the first time in a while. I didn't want to get in the way of the masterminds doing the real work, so i figured i could do some arts n crafts type stuff... like putting Rattle Trap sound deadening material in the car. now this is no small task because you need to be a master of a box cutter and a little roller wheel and the ability to cut shapes to any shape you want and not conform to anyones guidelines.
so here's some pics
i wasn't using the heat gun, it's beyond my skill level of equipment. it was just in the pic as a prop
don't forget the trunk
and a few other things i had no part of doing
then an oil cooler popped outta nowhere
OEM cloth tape wrap is CHERRY and awesome
lets count the numbers
a few more pics from today
new air filter
some more cutting and pasting
and then these showed up in pieces. So i put em together
and tires got mounted to these for a E36 M3
the gotti center caps i have had the stupid Corvette logos on them and were wrapped in some kind of foil crap. I had those center caps sprayed satin black and and trying to decide what to do with them. but i do have all 4 original Gotti caps.
Down to the wire Brian! But its coming together
diagnose why the spark isn't firing
install full interior
get tires mounted
wet sand, buff, minor paint touch up
install side skirts, front bumper, grill, headlights, fog lights, passenger door window regulator
and clear bra if i had time
oh and also try to put a few miles on it before the trip across the desert.
who knows what could happen in the next 4 days.
